PRESS RELEASE from Recreation21(Rue d’Étropal)
2015 has been a busy year for Recreation21, in the design department.
The range of inset track has now extended to cover gauges from 6.5mm up to 45mm . Some new items, and new scaled versions of WW1 era and other narrow gauge locos and wagons have also been developed.
The big change in 2015 has been the creation of a new web front end for the Shapeways e-shop, which makes it easier to see what is in the range, link to specific items on Shapeways e-shop, and also includes track templates to print off. Online selling is still handled by Shapeways .
New ‘wrap around’ inlay sections have been added to the range for OO/HO gauge.
A start has been made on a code 75 version on inset track range, and new track designs are being added to both code100 and code 75 track ranges. It should also be possible to fit code 83 rail in the sections designed for code 75 rail.
There is some exciting news for 2016.
Firstly Recreation21 is going on the road, and attending UK model railway exhibitions, either as a demonstrator to show how the track designs work, or as a trader where a limited number of items will be on sale.
New track designs are planned, along with more code 75 rail versions.
The possibility of bespoke designs for those planning layouts, requiring something different to the standard range.
Simon Dawson BA.
I casually included the last new idea, the possibility of designing bespoke track for people. Not sure how this would work out, as it can take quite a lot of time to do some designs.
As for exhibitions, I have some already booked, both as a demonstrator and as a trader. Initially looking for those within easy reach, but am willing to attend shows further away, especially big shows and for demonstrating how to use my track. I have hoping to get a very small stock of lower cost items, but if it proves successful I may be able to afford more stock. Essentially this is an online business, but I need to get items to show to people.
